  1. Horse Colors and Genetics
    Hi all.. I'm new to all the colour genetics of breeding horses but I'm searching for a Buckskin filly to buy and have come across an advertised buckskin filly.. But in all its photos it appears to have a white mane, but still slightly dark points and a dark tail. Will the mane darken in time or...
  2. Horse Colors and Genetics
    This is Ekko, she's ten months old. I apologize for her scruffy looking coat, it's muddy and shedding season. Ekko's dam is a brown roan percheronxsomething. Her sire is a leopard appy. Ekko was born a grulla/silvery colour. She shed out that coat quite quickly and appeared brown with a lighter...

    We've got a new little chestnut roan pony arriving soon. He is too young for riding and is in very bad condition at the moment! (A rescue case mentioned on the 'Horse Care' forum!) I'm looking to buy him a halter before he arrives. I'm a very big fan of colour coordination :'D What colours do...

    What is the gray and white spotty marking you get on welsh cobs called?
  5. Horse Colors and Genetics
    My horse is very oddly coloured but I'm still waiting for her seal bay test to come back. I have a feeling she might just be a dark dark bay with a sunbathed tail (its brown) but I have never seen a bay horse with such a weird leg marking. On the front of her hind leg there is a very thin but...

    I know this is a Orlov Trotter, but what colour is he? Is it just plan white?:-|

    I have a dark bay Thoroughbred mare. She has one white sock on her off-hind leg, and a large uneven blaze. We are planning to get her in foal to a Paloosa stallion (palomino with white patches over top of his rump, blaze and one sock). My mare's sire was brown, and dam was bay. The stallion's...
  8. Horse Talk
    As a novice horse owner, I've still got a lot to learn. A lot of it I'm picking up through reading, talking to other horse owners, from practice. But there are occasional small things that continue to baffle me. Like, seasonal horse colour changes. How do they work? My horse Dubbin's black...
  9. Horse Colors and Genetics
    I've had much debate over the colour of my horse - people tell me he is chestnut, liver chestnut, flaxen chestnut and some people say he is bay; another even said that it has been died that colour :lol: I'm leaning towards liver chestnut, but all posts I've read about liver chestnut say the...

  14. Horse Breeds
    I've just bought a nine month old Shetland cross and the fathers breed was unknown. Mini has pink skin but around her lips she has black spots and she also has black spots under her tail . . . does this mean that she might have an appy colour when she gets older? Right now she is a dark fluffy...
